David Garrick in the role of Richard III (after the painting in the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool) awakening from his troubled dream in the tent before the battle of Bosworth Field. The great actor was a close friend of Hogarth. An 18th century copy on laid paper reduced in size from the 1746 engraving by Charles Grignion. A good impression.
